    Do you want to talk crap to a CNN correspondent and leave a bad tip while being served a drink? Well, you can get this chance at the CNN Cameraman fundraiser in the DMV. The will be on Nov 17 2010 at Cuba Libre restaurant. Jerry Thompson's three children needs your help. Thompson, a very popular 25-year career CNN cameraman was diagnosed with brain cancer and, he lost his job at CNN when his medical leave was exhausted.

    This family member of the CNN network had his co worker rally around him to throw this event to aid in his support in these hard times in America.

    The celebrity bartenders will be from CNN, Fox News, NBC, ABC, The Washington Post and National Journal. People such as Wolf Blitzer, John King, Dana Milbank, Candy Crowley, Major Garrett, Dana Bash, Joe Lockhart, Mike Viqueira, Jill Dougherty, Claire Shipman, Jamie McIntyre, Chris Plante, Ed Henry, Lisa Sylvester, and Brett Baier will be bartenders and, this roster is growing.

    National Journal will be shaking up the evening at Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar. A silent auction with prizes such as four tickets to The Colbert Report, Ravens and Capitals tickets, photographs by Pulitzer Prize winning photographers and a week at the beach will be available to the highest bidder. Matching donation challenges on this energized evening are also anticipated. Suspicious Package, the Washington all-journalist band, whose members include Pulitzer Prize winning political cartoonist Tom Toles of The Washington Post, is donating its services to enrich the fun.
